Michelin’s guide noted “This tastefully restored Georgian country house sits in peaceful grounds which stretch down to the Exe Estuary, and its pretty veranda is the perfect spot for a drink looking out over their vineyard and towards Lyme Bay. It’s a luxurious place, owned by local chef Michael Caines, and the service is smooth, warm and friendly. The airy Berry Head room offers views over the headland and is a great place for lunch, while the Powderham room is perfect for the evening with its intimate booths. Cooking is sophisticated, well-balanced and boldly flavoured – and while the dishes have classical undertones, presentation remains modern and elaborate. The 8 course ‘Signature’ tasting menu demonstrates the team’s abilities and there’s an ‘Estuary’ option available for pescatarians. Bedrooms are beautifully furnished; go for one with a fire pit and a hot tub on the terrace.”
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported the Manor over the last couple of challenging years in the hospitality industry. The entire team has powered through and continued to provide an exceptional experience to all who visited. Congratulations also to fellow colleagues in the industry who have retained stars, gained stars and achieved recognition for their passion and dedication.
